Organisers have announced that the Grosvenor House Art and Antiques Fair is no longer financially viable and will not take place next year.
However, in consultation with the British Antique Dealers’ Association and the executive committee, it has been decided that the fair is no longer financially viable.
Hopes are high that this will provide an opportunity for the trade to mount a new event commensurate with maintaining London as the centre of the art market.
Chairman Simon Phillips says: ‘It has been a very long and happy partnership but most great events have a lifespan and a diamond anniversary is a fitting point on which to end on a positive note.’
